Amazing time, our tour guide "Jazzy Johnny" was an amazing and talented guide. We felt safe the entire time. The views were incredible. I will never forget this experience. There is also so much to do in the valley and near Seneca rocks as well. Afterward we ate at the "Front Porch" which had an amazing view of some of... More

This was a wonderful family activity for us with our two teens (15 and 17). We have only one actual climber in the family and it's not Mom and Dad; this was a fabulous way for all of us to be up high looking at the incredible Rock formations together. This got the adrenaline going but didn't feel unnatural. Yeah,... More

My husband and I have been wanting to go ziplining at Nelson Rocks for a few years now and we finally went! It's a beautiful area in West Virginia. The ziplining was so much fun! There is an initial "practice" zipline before you start the "real" ones (going from platform to platform. Standing on the platforms up so high was... More

The views were amazing all throughout the entire trip! At some spots it was scary, but I had a blast. It's much easier than rock climbing because of the pegs in the rocks. Overall it was s fantastic experience!

My wife and I accepted the challenge and were rewarded with a great time together and a sense of accomplishment. The scenery was breathtaking. The... More

We brought a group about 30 girls to go zip lining, very few of the girls had done it before and a lot were scared of heights. The guides were very good in helping the girls who were scared and got them thru the course. The guides were also very entertaining and friendly. It was a great time

We drove down from Pittsburgh so it was about a 3 and a half hour drive. We signed up to do both the Via Ferrata and the zip line canopy tour. I would recommend staying overnight and doing each early in the morning like we did. We still had time both days to see the other attractions in the area... More

I cannot imagine more of a climbing rush for someone like me who has no technical climbing skills. Dudes and dudettes, you really do go straight up rock faces for 3 hours, with breaks. The peak is about a 40-ft climb to a summit about six feet wide and 30 feet long. Holy cow. I started to get vertigo, in... More

We drove from Charleston, WV and did this climb in one day and drove back. I would recommend staying the night in their cozy cabins if you have to drive more than 2 hours to get home. We were exhausted after the climb and the trip home was sleepy. The actual event was Awesome!!! We had a wonderful day, with... More

We did the Via Ferrata course with our college age kids. It was an awesome day. The climb is exciting and a little nerve racking at times but at no time did I feel unsafe. They provide all the safety gear and instruction. If you follow the rules, it would practically impossible to have any serious injury. I was concerned... More
